My new favprite toy.

The Geek got the camera working!

I'm still experimenting with the pictures, they look a bit foggy to me. But the old pictures originally stored in the old computer are about the sharpest and brightest I've seen.

As you know, I'm experimenting with cheap knives. I bought four Kershaw Splines and using a just (*ahem) a few stones and a touch of slurry, I polished a knife for myself.

I actually believe every 15 dollar knife should have a 300 dollar edge.

This is my new "pocket clip" knife. In a pinch I can get to it, because while assisted opening it's faster than a switchblade.

I will experiment with my camera (lighting, shadow, playing cards and overhead lighting) and get the quality up.

As for now, I laid the edge on the Queens eye, just for 'Snow...

(BTW, guys, thanks again. Kidding aside, pictures of the knives in various stages of completion are important to my high-dollar clients. Your generosity also helped my business).

Definitely another bang-up job.

BTW, I think I prefer the more colorful playing card, versus the Blue/Black card.

The Blue/Black cards will probably be used for "mood effect" on select knives.

I have a Cold Steel "Immortal" that actually is a gladius. It's been polished all over and is only good for killing jihadists or as a Christmas present for a redhead.

The black cards will mute the many and varied shiny surfaces.

(Oh, when my wife is free we're going to take a picture of the Dell).

Good idea, I'll bet a lot of us would like to see it.
